Real could have guaranteed themselves a place in the last 16 with a victory in Germany, but that was not to be as they slumped to a 3-2 loss. Therefore the Spanish champions must now take something out of their final match at home to Lazio if they are to be certain of avoiding an embarrassing early exit from the competition.
"I didn´t want to arrive at this situation," the German coach said. "We missed out on two great chances. We came close to winning in Greece and now in Germany it has been difficult."
